Die Cuttin', Delighted, and Tickled *Pink*

Yesterday I knew I wanted to make an "It's your bird-day" owl card, so I went in search of a challenge blog for further inspiration.  I found an "anything goes" challenge at Paper Cutz and a CardPatterns sketch 125 for inspiration:
 I made this card yesterday afternoon with 3 things on my mind:
(#1)  I die cut an owl and made this card with papers and embellishments from the (#2) July Artful Delight kit and used a (#3) My Pink Stamper sentiment stamp.  This is how my weekend started:
(#1)  On Friday my bee hive card (click here) was showcased with the fabulous Amy & Maribel at Die Cuttin' Divas:
AND (#2)  I have been invited to be a guest designer for the month of August at Artful Delight.  I belonged to a scrapbook/card kit club about 6 years ago.  I enjoyed receiving those monthly kits!  After a few years of great success, that kit club closed its doors.  I have been searching for a kit club that is a good fit for my personal taste, and I found it at Artful Delight.  I *love* my July kit, and the August kit is gorgeous!

AND (#3)  late Saturday evening, Robyn announced her new design team for the 2nd term of 2011.  I was one of the seven newbies she added to her team!  I can hardly contain my excitement.  Robyn's stamps are excellent in quality and they coordinate well with images for my beloved Cricut cartridges.  Wowee, I am a My Pink Designer :)



  What a weekend!  I am elated and I am so thankful for these opportunities.

Supplies:
